Blood glucose meters are an essential tool in the lives of anyone with diabetes. They are used by diabetics to self-monitor their glucose levels in order to manage their disease. Because they are such important tools for managing diabetes, the market has been flooded with various brands. I have sifted through the thousands of available glucose meters so that you don’t have to! This post includes the best glucose meters that are currently on the market.
The best glucose meter on the market
The Contour Next One was rated by Top Ten Reviews as the best glucose meter on the market! The Contour Next One is Bluetooth-enabled to connect to the Contour Diabetes app, which is an impressive data management tool. It features a smartLIGHT feature which gives an instant indicator of blood glucose results. The meter also features a handy second-chance sampling feature, which prompts the user to reapply blood if the first sample is insufficient to take a reading. This helps to avoid lancing a second time and wasting strips!

The new kid on the block
The FORA 6 Connect is one of the newest glucose meters around and is FORA’s latest and greatest model. This Bluetooth-enabled meter is multi-functional, accepting strips to test for both blood glucose and ketones with gold technology for high accuracy. While most diabetics don’t test ketones, it’s a critical measurement for insulin-dependent diabetics. To make life easier, it also features an LCD backlight and an easy-slide strip ejector.
The classiest glucose meter around
The iHealth Smart Wireless Gluco-Monitoring System is one of the classiest looking glucose meters around. It is Bluetooth-enabled and connects with the iHealth Gluco-Smart app, which manages the data. iHealth Labs offers a full integration between all of its products to allow the user to better manage his or her overall health. They also include a one-year manufacturer warranty which shows their confidence in the quality of their products. It has 510(K) Approval for their glucose meter, and it is CE Certified for clinically approved accuracy.

The glucose meter with the best app, mySugr
The Accu-Chek Guide is a highly accurate Bluetooth-enabled glucose meter which synchronizes with both the Accu-Chek Connect app and the most downloaded diabetes management app on Google Play, mySugr. It comes with a spill resistant SmartPack vial which lets the user take one test strip and spill none. The well-deigned test strips allow the user to place blood anywhere, instead of on a tiny spot. It also features a push-button strip ejector, which means you don’t have to touch used strips.
The most simple, easy to use glucose meter
The OneTouch Verio Flex is designed to be simple and easy to understand, boasting ColorSmart Technology. The meter lets the user know where their glucose reading falls in relation to their personal target ranges set by their physician by using a simple colour bar on the front of the meter. While the meter’s simplicity is its appeal, patients can also use the meter’s built-in Bluetooth Smart Technology to wirelessly connect with the companion OneTouch Reveal mobile app for extra insight.
